Teasers Day 2 - Inspired by Birds


For day two of MFT teasers, I'm using the latest in our gorgeous Inspired By line - Inspired by Birds. I've made a technique based two layer card so all the focus is on the amazing art of these stamps!


I created my background on a shipping tag using this technique. I then sprayed all over with pearl glimmermist, and once everything was dry, stamped my images in Brilliance Black Ink. After heat setting, I went back in with a little distress ink on a water brush to add a little more colour to the images. A few dew drops (remember these?!) finish off this simple card.


Inside is nice and simple, the bird image is repeated along with an inspirational sentiment.
